My mom arrived on Thursday, and having her around has been great. She and I have been taking shifts with the baby, so I’m feeling a bit more rested and sane – although I think Mom is suffering a bit, since she isn’t used to all of the sleep disruptions. Oh well, she gets to go home and sleep next week, so let’s not cry too much for her, shall we?
Yesterday, we went to my friend Janet’s baby shower – and in honor of the event, Cate got to try out a new outfit from her aunt Tracy that I’ve been dying to put on her. I just had to wait until she grew into it.
Is that not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? I mean, the shoes are part of the design on the tights. God, I love that.
Tomorrow, Dave leaves for a conference in California, and Tuesday, my cousin, her mom (my aunt), and the Internet-famous e-baby arrive. I’m not thrilled at the idea of Dave being gone, but it should be a lot of fun to have the ladies all here. And I’m sure that Dave will probably be happy to miss the majority of their visit, since the household volume level will probably be set on “high” all week.
Btw, the rest of the Cate photos on Flickr can be found here.
